Closing time at Illeanarama

Illeanarama Illeana Douglas and Jeff GoldblumIt looks like the charming Illeanarama is coming to a close. The fifth and final installment of the online series, starring actress Illeana Douglas, will be posted on YouTube late this week. There is, however, word that a "special feature" edition with guest stars Sarah Silverman and Daryl Hannah will run the week after the final episode hits the internets. If you haven't caught Illeanarama yet, it's one of the best-produced and well-written little gems hiding in the YouTube morass.

The show features Illeana Douglas as a version of herself - specifically the version that chucked Hollywood glam for life as a working stiff at her local supermarket. Ed Begley Jr.'s working produce. Justine Bateman tends the carts, and Jeff Goldblum just wants to bake a cake. Of the celebrities not playing themselves, Christopher Guest film regular Jane Lynch puts her very funny "authoritative lesbian" shtick to good use as the market's long-suffering head cashier.

So, once you've had your fill of watching Oakland teens ghostride their whips and women stuffing their "tits in a box" for a chance at viral video fame, take a break and watch how the professionals handle the digital short form with Ms. Douglas' clever clean-up in aisle five.
